Story Eight Hundred Thirty Six Ends Friday, May 15

Hugg stepped out of his hut and observed the day before him. There was a slight breeze, the sound of Pteris flying overhead, with a glint of sunshine peeping through the thick brush. He took in a deep breath of jungle air and sighed.

He was almost out of omelette, which meant today was the day he needed to make his monthly journey to the Plateau to replenish his stock. He had been dreading this day for a while. Although the journey itself was not too difficult, it was nearly Tyrannian Victory Day, which meant that the Plateau was going to be heaving with Neopets from all over Neopia as they made their way to his home to celebrate.

This must be how Altadorians feel every summer, he thought to himself as he gathered up his sack and tools. "I'll just grab some omelette and go," he mumbled, closing the door behind him. "No need to stay any longer."

He was glad, of course, that Neopia chose to observe Victory Day. Hugg was only a young Lupe when the Monoceraptor was defeated, but he remembered hiding with his friends deep in the jungle, hoping that they wouldn't be discovered by the Grarrls.

As Hugg neared the edge of the jungle, he spotted a Xweetok standing at the mouth the bridge to the Plateau. The Xweetok turned as Hugg approached and waved.

"Something's going on down there," the Xweetok said, before Hugg could get any words out. Hugg noticed a large crowd gathered near the steps to the Giant Omelette.

"Perhaps they're just waiting in line?" Hugg suggested, though something in the pit of his stomach told him it wasn't just a queue for food.

Suddenly, the crowd parted and the two Neopets gasped. Hugg couldn't believe his eyes. In the centre of the crowd was ...

well, nothing. Exactly where the steps to the Giant Omelette should have been was a gaping hole, blown deep into the rock. Someone had completely cut off the land from the food source. And on the ground in the dust, to the right of where the stairs used to lay, was an image of the Monoceraptor.

"Is he back?" Squeaked the Xweetok next to Hugg. Hugg laughed.

"Of course not. It's just a prankster, looking for attention before the big celebration." Though to himself, he was not so confident.

"Is there any other way to get to the Omelette? My stores are completely gone!" The Xweetok was near panic now. Hugg looked at the crowd and began to scout the nearby rock.

"I'm not sure, but I intend to find out. Look there--". At the edge of the rock, nearly invisible in the rising sun, Hugg spotted ...

...footprints in the ground. They were strange, though. Definitely not the footprints of a regular Neopet. They were tiny! Clawed and looking like they belonged to some strange denizen, but tiny nonetheless.

"What in the name of Fyora could have such tiny footprints?" exclaimed the Xweetok, frantic with worry.

"No idea. Definitely not a Neopet, even a Baby pet wouldn't have such tiny footprints," replied Hugg, thinking hard. "Maybe a petpet?"

The Xweetok was panic-stricken, looking like he was ready to faint.

"Don't worry," said Hugg, hastily. "I will follow the footprints."

"What if it leads to something bad?" squeaked the frightened Xweetok.

"Well, first, let's see where they lead!"

The two Neopets began to follow the tiny footprints, though their task was made rather difficult by the small size of the prints. Squinting into the earth, they somehow managed to follow the trail. After about half an hour, Hugg gasped. The trail ended, and in front of him...

... was a giant cliffside. By now, the sun had completely risen and was mercilessly beaming down onto the plateau. Hugg lifted an arm to shield his eyes from the light as he slowly backed up to get a better look at the cliff. It seemed to stretch on for miles.

The Xweetok let out an exhausted sigh. "Well, what do we do now? The footprints lead to a dead end." He lifted a paw to wipe the sweat away from his brow.

Hugg stood there lost in thought as he searched his brain for answers. Why would the culprit choose to escape towards such an impossibly tall cliff? There was no way such a tiny creature would be able to climb over something like that. As he was finishing up that thought, his eyes scanned over a suspicious pile of rocks, neatly stacked at the cliff's base.

"Unless... they didn't climb over it!" he said, as he hastily made his way over to them.

"Did you find something?" asked the Xweetook who curiously peered over Hugg's shoulder.

"No, but it looks like I'm about to." he lifted away the last rock to reveal a small tunnel."Aha!"

"The escape route!" exclaimed the Xweetook, his eyes wide with surprise.

Hugg peered into the dark, endless tunnel. "It looks big enough to crawl through."

His friend bent down to take a look at it and swallowed nervously, but before he could protest, Hugg was already making his way inside.

"W-wait for me!" cried the anxious Xweetok. He flailed frantically before reluctantly entering the tunnel too.

The Neopets made their way through the dark abyss, crawling through the seemingly endless passageway for what felt like hours before reaching its end. With the last of their energy, they dragged themselves out of the tunnel and find themselves at...

How will this story end?

...the bottom of the hole that had been blown in the stairs. In front of them was the image of the Monoceraptor, painted on the stone with bright pigments that shimmered in the hot Tyrannian sun, seeming almost to move in the light, and above them, high above, out of jumping and climbing range, was the new bottom of the Plateau stairs.

Hugg felt a surge of frustration. They'd come so far--down the path, through the tunnel--and while they were closer to the omelette now than they were when they first noticed the crater, it didn't really feel like that. He was on the verge of giving up when Hugg remembered this was Tyrannian Victory Day, not Tyrannian Surrender Day.

"Okay. We just have to think this through. There were petpet tracks leading right to this crater. This tunnel wouldn't have had an opening at this end before the crater appeared, so the petpet has to be involved, but could a petpet really do something like this?" Hugg thought out loud.

The Xweetok next to him perked up. "Hey! Remember when the Monoceraptor was defeated? There were rumours that the Monoceraptor was just a pawn of someone...or something more sinister! What if this image was created by the puppet master?"

"Sure, but who could that be? I don't know of any villains at large who have petpets," Hugg said. But as the words came out, he realized what could be behind the crater, the painting, the chaos.

Not one petpet. Many of them.

"Oh no, he said."

At that moment, he noticed something moving along the crater wall, something small and pink, with a devious twinkling in its eyes.

Hugg didn't have time to think. He just lunged, trapping the Meepit between his paws before it even knew he was there. There was a badge pinned to the Meepit's fur, and it squeaked in protest. How lucky was he that their leader was the one lingering around to put the final touches on the painting?

"Listen, you," Hugg said. "I know you can undo this. You didn't beat us last time with the Monoceraptor, and you're not going to beat us this time with its memory."

The Meepit squirmed and squeaked, and the Xweetok came up behind Hugg to see, looming over it.

"You know," she said, "you're not so scary up close. You're kinda cute, actually." She reached out a paw to pat the Meepit's head, and it snapped at her fingers. "Awww. He's scared. Can I keep him?"

Hugg looked at the Xweetok with shock on his face. "You want to...keep a Meepit?"

"I mean, after it gets its friends to clean up this mess. I don't have a petpet, and my friends live so far away. Think of all the ways I could dress it up!"

The Meepit screeched, a shrill, terrifying sound with echoes of the Monoceraptor's roar in it.

"You don't want her to take you home? You and your friends better clean up this mess. Right now."

The Meepit shook its head and snapped at Hugg, but over the Lupe's shoulder, the Xweetok took a length of fabric out of her backpack and held it up to compare the colour to his fur, and the Meepit recoiled.

"That's what I thought," Hugg said triumphantly.

The Meepit wriggling in his grip whistled, and a dozen...no, a hundred more appeared in the crater. They came from behind rocks, from under the debris, even from out of other little tunnels around the perimeter, some carrying wood and stone and leaves, and together they started to build a bridge over the pit for the crowd of Neopians who had gathered at the bottom of the stairs.

When the bridge was built, Hugg pointed to the painting of the Monoceraptor. "That too."

But it turned out that the paint the Meepits had used to make the painting wasn't so easy to wash away. It was permanent, and they couldn't clean it up.

"I guess she gets to take you home after all," Hugg told the Meepit, handing it over to the Xweetok. Then he whispered, hoping it couldn't hear, "I'll get some volunteers together to paint over it. Maybe our Altador Cup team's logo. But they don't need to know that." He winked.

The Xweetok winked back. Together, she and Hugg walked across the newly constructed bridge and filled their packs with their monthly omelette ration.

The End,
